Palio 2020: on the way to procrastination?
Yesterday, March 25, Mayor De Mossi addressed the press. Among other things, he spoke about the Palio. First, he emphasized that at a time like this, people’s health is the most important thing. Everything else, including whether or not to run the 2020 Palios, will be overshadowed.
It seems inconceivable to him to run the Palio behind closed doors. Firstly because of the efforts made by the city to increase the capacity on the Piazza, but secondly because the Palio is a festival with an international appearance and is the example of democracy.
Between today and next thursday, the council will meet to consider whether the Palio will be postponed to another time of the year, taking into account weather conditions, among other things.
